Earlier, I did a review on Glory, #4 to this series, well the other day, I bought the rest of the series on Ebay.
Back Cover:
Wanted: Women with religious upbringing, high morals, and a strong sense of adventure, willing to marry decent, God-fearing men. Applicants may apply by mail. Must allow at least 2 months for an answer.

With the matrimonial prospects in her little Michigan town virtually nonexistent, nineteen-year-old Faith- along with her two sisters, Hope and June- answers an ad for mail-order brides. Before she knows it, she's on her way to Deliverance, Texas, determined to make a success of her marriage to wealthy rancher Nicholas Shepherd.
But from the moment she arrives in Deliverance, sparks begin to fly between Faith, a strong-willed tomboy, and her prospective husband- a man with a pretty Strong will of his own! Then there's Liza, Nicholas's mother, who is anything but thrilled that her son has chosen a mail-order bride. After a string of wedding postponements and a slew of interfering people, a union between Nicholas and Faith begins to look less and less likely.
In the meantime Faith and Nicholas are beginning to care for one another-but is their matching stubbornness destine to forever be a barrier between them?

My Two Cents Worth:

Faith and her sisters, have just lost their father, and realize that their ageing aunt can't afford 3 extra mouths to feed. So they answer these ads, but when Faith reaches Texas, it's not all she had hoped.
When the first attempt to get married failed, she thought nothing of it. but after the 2nd or 3rd attempt failed again, Faith begins to doubt if they were supposed to be together. And on top of this her would be mother in law, is still grieving the lose of her husband two years earlier.
When both Faith and Nicholas realize they love each other, can they put aside their pride and accept each other's apologies?
